Baked Fish

Saw this recipe from Reel and Grill while searching for fish recipes. 

The fish is oven baked where all the tasty juices and flavours are kept inside the aluminium foil. And as for the fish, it was soft and sweet without the fishy smell, maybe because of the lemons. :))

Thumbs up for this dish!!

Ingredients :

1 medium fish
11/2 tbsp ginger - julienned
2 cloves garlic - sliced
2 tbsp green onion - cut into 2 inch length
1/2 lemon - sliced
1 tbsp butter
1 chicken buillon / seasoning - omitted
1/2 tsp salt
a few dash of black pepper

Method :

Preheat oven to 200C. 
( Top and bottom heat )

Season fish with salt and pepper.
Put some ginger and garlic inside the fish cavity.

Using aluminium foil, arrange some ginger, garlic, green onions, lemons and butter on the bottom of fish.

Then, arrange the balance ginger, garlic, green onions and lemons on top of fish.
( Divide the ingredients properly )

Fold the aluminium foil tightly to cover the fish.
Secure the ends by folding the foil as well.
Then, baked in a preheated oven for 30 minutes.

When the fish is ready, transfer it to a large plate.
Open and fold down the aluminium foil.
( Caution : very hot steam )
And VOILA, this fragrant and yummy fish is done.
Serve immediately with steamed rice.

Very soft meat.

Gave some to my princess but she wanted more!! hehe.


  1. that's one of my favourite no-fail methods for fish too (: always flaky and soft if you don't overcook! can try with baking parchment too, healthier than aluminium (:

    what fish is that? It looks so tender and fresh! (I'm still trying to learn my way around all the many many fishes in the market!)

  2. Hi Shu Han, thanks for dropping by.
